    1:14:50 I’m trying to get my registration finalised, I’m having slight troubles with the registration, I don’t have my own Personal SD Card. I’m now 19, good age to start attending, which I think was also SZ’s age when he started attending in 2012.

    I think the difference you’re trying to make between this and Super Mario 3D World is that Super Mario 3D World is a Linear Platformer while Yooka-Laylee is better known to be a “Collect-a-thon” or something like that. 😛

    Also Sol, saddly for a Hat in Time the 3rd world looks quite linear at the moment. I doubt they’ll keep this way since there is a free-roam mode within the beta if you’ve seen any footage.
